Baker Tilly Partners with Vispa to Bring Advanced Automated Workflow to Memorial Health System

CHICAGO (May 13, 2020) – Leading advisory, tax and assurance firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly), and top healthcare workflow development firm Vispa, have partnered to provide healthcare organizations with advanced and automated workflow solutions to drive industry changing revenue cycle operations, most recently with a new implementation for Memorial Health System based in Marietta, Ohio.

“We selected Baker Tilly and Vispa due to their combined commitment to our success, as well as their integrated approach to revenue cycle innovation,” Scott Silvestri, CFO of Memorial Health System stated. “Quite frankly, we wanted a solution with outside-the-box thinking so that we could achieve outside-the-box results, and that is exactly what we have with Baker Tilly and Vispa.”

Vispa brings an advanced, business rule-driven workflow solution to healthcare providers and couples it with Baker Tilly’s revenue cycle expertise to drive significant financial improvement and operational efficiencies throughout healthcare organizations. This combination allows provider organizations, such as Memorial Health System, to drastically improve the efficiency and effectiveness of revenue cycle activities. This, in turn, drives faster cash improvement and enhances annual net revenue.

“By partnering with Vispa, we are able to help our healthcare clients improve efficiency, productivity and effectiveness with features like next-most-valuable business algorithms and sophisticated machine learning nudge capabilities,” said Mike Duke, principal with Baker Tilly’s healthcare consulting practice. “No longer do cumbersome system architecture and outdated work queue configurations drive employee effectiveness or where they need to work. Vispa’s workflow technology allows us to help our clients fundamentally change their revenue cycle operations and make effective work-from-home solutions a reality, which has become necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Baker Tilly’s Advanced Revenue Cycle (ARC) programs drive exponential value and lasting change through action-oriented information and reporting capabilities, real-time visibility into revenue cycle team performance, and monitoring of change impact to allow for continuous improvement.

“The power of combining Baker Tilly’s subject matter expertise and our Vispa workflow technology was a natural fit given the depth of their operational knowledge and our shared goal of transforming the revenue cycle industry,” said Geneva Schlabach, Vispa CEO.
